Heat games are averaging a 2.3 local rating on Fox Sports Sun this season, which is down 48 percent from last season, according to Sports Business Journal. But that’s still good enough for sixth best in the league this season. For perspective, consider that Heat games averaged a 6.8 during LeBron James’ final season with the Heat (equal to 6.8 percent of Miami-Fort Lauderdale homes with TV sets) and a 5.0 in 2014-15, the first season since James left.

It was the kind of meeting Barkley might not have taken as a younger man, an NBA superstar with the 76ers, Suns and Rockets. Barkley had his wild younger days, including t hrowing a man through a window and skipping an All-Star Game to gamble, as we were reminded of this month by LeBron James. Now he says he’s in “a better place” – and even more influential than he was as 1992-93 NBA MVP. “I’m not the first, and I’m certainly not going to be the last that did stupid things in their 20s,” Barkley said. “I might do stupid things in 50s. But I mean, it’s not about the things you do wrong. Everybody’s going to make mistakes; mine are just more public. But nah, that didn’t bother me at all. You know the really cool thing about the stupid stuff I did? A lot of times kids make mistakes and can never recover.”
Storyline: LeBron-Barkley Beef
It is one of many issues drawing the attention of both the league and its players, with many NBA stars — including LeBron James — speaking out repeatedly of late about the need for equality in society. And Silver, while not going as far to say that considering such a law would keep Texas from being considered for All-Star events in the future, made clear that the NBA is watching. Next year’s All-Star weekend is in Los Angeles. Texas last hosted an All-Star weekend in 2013. “I’m not ready to draw bright lines,” Silver said. “Clearly, though, the laws of the state, ordinances, and cities are a factor we look at in deciding where to play our All-Star Games.”
LeBron James: Wow time sure does fly! 15 years ago to this date I was Chosen to be on the cover on SI. To me I just thought it was cool and all cause the magazine was always something my boys and I would look at and read in the library every time another issue dropped but I have no idea the magnitude of being on the cover as a high school kid would bring!! I guess that’s why nothing ever fazed me cause I was so unaware of it all. Just wanted to play ball, go to school(so I could see my brothers, learn something, see some girls) and spend time with moms. Anyways I can say that I’ve done something right with my opportunity and life giving! #StriveForGreatness🚀 #TheKidFromAkron👑

“I don’t have a rivalry with Steph Curry,” James said after Saturday’s All-Star practice session. “There’s no way you can say, ‘Let’s talk about rivalries,’ and you say, ‘Bird and Magic. Carolina, Duke. Ohio State, Michigan,’ and then say ‘LeBron and Steph.’ It’s disrespectful to those other three that I just named that you would even try to put us in the class with that. We haven’t had enough battles, and who’s to say we will have future battles. We’ll see, but to put us in a category with [them], it’s impossible. You can’t do it.”
